Subject: Forgiving your mother that mentally and physically abused you,stole your inheritance, college fund,and youth

I offer all my thoughts of anger,mania,despair,etc every day on this subject stated above to jesus in prayer.I have good and bad days just like my fellow catholics.But,I know that the love in my heart is because I walk with the holy spirit and mary.My faith will be always be strong.However, I try to be meek but sometimes its SO Hard. Mother Angelica once told me to always continue working on your faith, charity and know where you are going to HEAVEN.Yes, it is tough in the world today to be PROUD TO BE CATHOLIC.BUT, It is very necessary to forgive people in your life that have caused you grave harm...If you think you can not forgive just look at all the stations of the cross everyday.It makes me believe and love my faith even more...
